IMPORTANT INFORMATION PLEASE READ
This Spring, as part of the budget development process, the district reviewed a number of options to reduce costs and help close a large projected deficit. Among the options reviewed were eliminating non-WIAA sports (crew, water polo and lacrosse) or requiring these sports to be fully funded by participants. Board Policy and Procedure 2151 have long required this of non-WIAA sports, but the district has not enforced it uniformly for some time. After consulting with the school board, the decision was made that going forward, all non-WIAA sport costs must be fully covered by parents and students.
Board Procedure 2151:
Parents and/or participants provide the funds to pay for coaches’ salaries, equipment (including helmets, helmet inspections and reconditioning, if needed for such sport), mouthpieces, uniforms, pool fees (if applicable), officials’ fees, transportation (if necessary), licensed athletic trainers (where required for safety and/or insurance requirements), and site supervision for practice(s) and contests. Funds must be sufficient to cover any pre and post- season costs. Students will not be required to pay the athletic participation fee but will be required to purchase their school’s ASB card.
Each year the district will provide the groups with a calculation of anticipated costs. Student participation fees will be calculated based on the prior year’s participation numbers. Funds for the rental of the pool use must be deposited with the district prior to the payment of each pool invoice. Salaries for coaching staff must be deposited with the district prior to the beginning of the season.
Based on this, the costs to participate in Water Polo for the 23-24 school year will be: $1,194.00
